I was having a chat with one of the ladies who’s about to get started on our Reboot programme this week.
(reply with ‘Reboot’ for more details. Last start date is next week)
And she asked me ‘why is this just for ladies over 40?’..
Which reminded me about why this all started…
You see, I used to just do personal training…
You know, train people in a gym, do some food plans…that was it.
Until I started seeing that a few of the ladies I worked with said that they would never do this on their own without me in the gym…
And it got me then doing programmes that the ladies could do at home and with minimal equipment.
It was no longer something they had to do with loads of equipment in an intimidating gym…
When you feel everyone is look at you…
Where they would worry:
‘I will be the most unfit’
‘I will look silly’
‘I’ll be too big’…
And this was I knew I had to do something about it
when one of the ladies actually had a panic attack in a gym we were in..
She didn’t feel comfortable so we started training in her home…
Her friend then wanted to do it with her and…
That was it..
I decided to launch a programme specifically for women over 40…
So the intensity,
Can all be bespoke for you..
I can’t tell you how many conversations I had with people who’d say:
“It’s just too easy to put it off”
And then it usually goes like this:
“When I go to a gym
I just do what I know.
Probably cross trainer.
I avoid the weight area as I feel intimidated.
Someone might come up to me and ask if I need help.
I quickly say ‘no’ and then wish I would have said ‘yes’ but it just all feels too much.
I feel good once I am done
But I have no idea if I did it correctly.”
^^^ sound familiar?
I remember back in 2014 when we first started our ladies only programmes…
No kids at the time..
Had just got married…
And I just had this vision to create the best ladies only programme in Wiltshire [specifically for ladies over 40]..
I wanted to make it non-intimidating
Somewhere that people who never thought they could find somewhere comfortable to get fit and healthy could go.
And find themselves surprising themselves by actually sticking to it.
For ladies to make friends, not be judged, speak to expert trainers, nutritionists, dietitians, yoga teachers
And get amazing results.
To become stronger – physically and mentally
To overcome adversity..
And for the past 7 years or so
It surpassed what I could ever have imagined…
I absolutely love my work
And I love delivering our live home workouts and in-person sessions to all of our members ..
Thing is though?
None of this is good without people…
Without our amazing community.
Our team of awesome coaches.
Sorry to go on and on haha
Writing these emails are meant to inspire you to become fitter and healthier.
I actually find them therapeutic to write.
This one especially..
So if you’re still reading?
Thanks for listening to this long-winded answer..
In a nutshell:
The reason this is only for women 40+…
- Support and community is a big part of this to help you stay motivated and confident that you do not have to do this along
- It allows us to make everything more bespoke for you (a woman over 40 wouldn’t do the same thing as a 20 year old guy…)
- This includes nutrition and fitness, taking into account injuries, joint issues, diets you’ve tried before, menopause and more…
That’s all for now..
